I am always asked to bring this salad to holiday get togethers. I love making it at Christmastime. And it really tastes as good as it looks!
1 can beets, cubed
2 Tbs. veg. oil
juice from 1 orange (1/4 cup)
1/4 cup pomegranate juice (I've found this at Smith's Marketplace at Target)
1 Tbs. white wine vinegar (or rice vinegar)
1 med. red onion, thinly sliced
2 cans mandarin orange pieces
1 cup pomegranate seeds
5 cups of fresh greens (Spring Mix)
Whisk orange juice, pomegranate juice, vinegar, and 2 Tbs. oil in large bowl to blend. Season vinagrette with salt and pepper. Place onion in small bowl. Cover with cold water. Soak onion 1 minute, drain, and squeeze dry in kitchen towel. Add beets, onion, orange slices, and pomegranate seeds to vinagrette in bowl, toss. Season salad with salt and pepper, arrange on top of a bed of greens.
